My wife and I have done several cruises with several different cruise lines but Fred Olsen is our favourite and Balmoral our favourite ship. It is an ideal size, 43000 tons, 1000 passengers, giving you plenty of opportunity to get to know fellow cruisers. Our cabin was quite spacious and had a bath and shower. The food on Olsen cruises is unbeatable and the crew must be the friendliest on the seven seas, always smiling and nothing to much trouble. The entertainment was very good with a excellent show company with fabulous costumes and three guest entertainers, two comedians and top rate singer. Excellent Cruise Director, Ashley Burton Burrows who arranged an excellent programme of events. We visited Madeira, La Palma, Praia (Cape Verde Islands), which was a bit disappointing, very undeveloped, but the other island Mindelo was much better, we then went on to Tenerife and ended with a overnight stay in Lisbon. The weather was really good until the big storm that hit the south coast of UK caught up with us in the Atlantic but ship rode this very well as it does whatever the weather. We noticed that disabled guests and those with limited mobility were extremely well looked after. We have sailed on the Balmoral on a previous occasion and most certainly hope to sail on this lovely ship again and would recommend it to anyone.
